    So i am leaving verizon for sprint because of this beautiful phone and cheaper plans. Is there anything i should know about sprints service, or anyway i can discount my ETF with Verizon right now which is about 80 bucks?

    Also, what are some good screen protectors?

    I don't think you'll be able to discount Verizon's EFT. As for screen protectors, I don't know - I won't be using one but there are several threads about them. And I'm not sure there's anything you 'should know about Sprint's servicel. Good luck and welcome! =)

    I 've heard that sprint is giving a $100 port credit to new customers porting their number over to sprint. That should more than offset you EFT. You should give sprint a call...........

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing. However, I think VZW will milk you for every dime if you terminate early. Just my opinion.

    Verizon will pro rate your ETF's... I recently cancelled 2 lines and both ETF's were pro rated... One line was $90 and the other was $40

    I'm coming from Verizon too, but I am in my first 30, so I should be OK.

    They were all out of incredibles, so they sold me a droid and said I could return it when they were stocked. With my employee discount, the verizon 450+data is the same as sprint's everything data/450. They didn't have an evo display, but I checked the signal on a sprint hero, and the signal was 10db better, and the evdo download was >100kbps better. The girl at sprint promised they didn't have one of those repeater things in the store, and that wouldn't have impacted speedtest.net anyway.

    I am totally torn between the 2 phones, but the signal difference near home, the pricing, and the difference in ETFs (vzw-$350, sprint-$200) are pushing me to the evo.

    If it fits in my jeans pocket Friday, I'll go with it. I figure worst case, I have 30 days, and I can always change again if need be.

    I found this site that should assist in the port credit:
    Sprint Number Porting Credit Application

    Good Luck, and make sure you setup your gmail/app brain/contacts up before Friday.

    I got in my time machine, went forward in time to Friday, and got my EVO, but the lady at the Sprint store told me that the porting credit was only for corporate accounts.

Must port in from an active wireless line and remain active on original account number for 61 days in order to receive full service credit.

    Add me to the list of VZW refugees.

    Service was outstanding, can't remember the phone ever not being able to make a call, but I'm just tired of paying so much more and the EVO looks fantastic to me.

    To top it off, I live in Atlanta and I've been using Clear WiMax with very good results, so I'm looking forward to 4G in a phone and free WiMax (pdanet tethering) for my laptop.
